Sherlock Bookmark 3
Wednesday, February 15th, 2012
Bookmark week continues with another Sherlock Holmes!
He skulks on this black bookmark in pencil, which makes his details vanish at the wrong angle, though the graphite catches the light nicely at the right angle. I painted in his green eyes, red buttonhole and blue scarf on a whim, and I like the way those little details leap out of the page at you.
Sherlock Bookmark 3, 1″x5″ pencil and watercolor on paper, nfs (sold).
You can really see his detailing in the detail photo, above, and of course I couldn’t resist a shot of him peeking sneakily up out of a book, below.
